Weir Cooking in the City by Joanne Weir

In her new book, Weir Cooking in the City, chef and teacher Joanne Weir takes readers and home cooks into our nation’s ethnically diverse and vibrant culinary urban landscape. Joanne invites readers to search their own cities for the myriad international flavors and tastes they will find there. From local ethnic neighborhoods to the butcher to the farmers’ market, Joanne seeks out the best ingredients and most delicious dishes and shows how they can be re-created in home kitchens anywhere.
